Carla, born in Italy, looked distinctively elegant in Celine’s one-shoulder dress, which featured dazzling ornate fabric that draped over one arm and cascaded down her back.

Carla, whose floor-length maxi dress had a thigh-high slit that drew attention to her svelte pins, teamed her glamorous ensemble with silver high heels and a dainty clutch.

Nicolas Sarkozy’s wife, who served as president between 2007 and 2012, kept her accessories to a minimum – adding just a silver bracelet to make sure her gorgeous dress got the talk.

The couple share a daughter Giulia, eight, while Carla has a son, Aurélien Enthoven, 19, from a previous relationship.

Carla opted for cool makeup and let her brown locks fall over her shoulders in loose waves.

French filmmaker Leos Carax has directed with his first feature film since the critically acclaimed 2012 film Holy Motors for the new musical.

Annette is Carax’s first English film and the film features music by the band Sparks.

The members of the Sparks Brothers, Ron Mael and Russell Mael, wrote both this original story and the score for the film, chosen as the opening night selection.

Earlier today, Marion Cotillard and Adam Driver posed together at the Cannes Film Festival during a photocall for the upcoming film.

Marion discussed the odd sex scenes the couple had while filming their roles as husband and wife, which involved unusual chanting in bedroom situations.

She said: “On most classic musicals you record your songs in advance and then play them on set. But here Leos wanted it all to be completely live.

“It added to the complexity of the set: we found ourselves singing in very complicated positions, crawling on our backs or miming cunnilingus; acrobatic positions that technically alter your song [the way you sing].

“But that was the effect Leos wanted: he wanted the voices to be changed, upset, by the real one. [situation]. ‘

Marion was intrigued by Carax’s vision because the musical film – which tells the story of the titular maiden who was born with a special gift – is the first she can remember in which the characters have sex.

She said: “Weirdly, we never see people f ****** or doing trivial things in musicals.”

The film hits theaters on August 6, before making its debut on the Amazon Prime Video streaming service on August 20.
